The Global Studies Association is an organisation that focuses on global issues facing us in the modern world from a sociological perspective. This includes analysing notions of globalisation, cosmopolitanism, nationality, identity, inter-connectedness and many more themes. The GSA holds an annual conference to discuss contemporary global issues and this year is all about Global Dis-Connections.

Due to coronavirus, this year’s conference, scheduled to take place in Manchester, on 11 and 12 June 2020, has been cancelled and will be rescheduled at a further date. Please keep an eye on this page for further updates.
